## S3 method for class 'mbnma.predict'
plot(
  x,
  disp.obs = FALSE,
  overlay.split = FALSE,
  method = "common",
  agent.labs = NULL,
  scales = "free_x",
  ...
)

Arguments

x

An object of class "mbnma.predict" generated by predict("mbnma")

disp.obs

A boolean object to indicate whether to show the location of observed doses in the data on the 95\% credible intervals of the predicted dose-response curves as shaded regions (TRUE) or not (FALSE). If set to TRUE the original network object used for the model must be specified in network.

overlay.split

A boolean object indicating whether to overlay a line showing the split (treatment-level) NMA results on the plot (TRUE) or not (FALSE). This will require automatic running of a split NMA model. For overlay.split=TRUE the original network object used for the model must be specified in network.

method

Indicates the type of split (treatment-level) NMA to perform when overlay.split=TRUE. Can take either "common" or "random".

agent.labs

A character vector of agent labels to display on plots. If left as NULL (the default) the names of agents will be taken from predict. The position of each label corresponds to each element of predict. The number of labels must equal the number of active agents in predict. If placebo / dose=0 data is included in the predictions then a label for placebo should not be included in agent.labs. It will not be shown in the final plot since placebo is the point within each plot at which dose = 0 (rather than a separate agent).

scales

Should scales be fixed ("fixed", the default), free ("free"), or free in one dimension ("free_x", "free_y")?

Details

For the S3 method plot(), it is advisable to ensure predictions in predict are estimated using a sufficient number of doses to ensure a smooth predicted dose-response curve. If disp.obs = TRUE it is advisable to ensure predictions in predict are estimated using an even sequence of time points to avoid misrepresentation of shaded densities.

# Using the triptans data
network <- mbnma.network(HF2PPITT)

# Run an Emax dose-response MBNMA and predict responses
emax <- mbnma.emax(network, method="random")
pred <- predict(emax, E0 = 0.5)
plot(pred)

# Display observed doses on the plot
plot(pred, disp.obs=TRUE)

# Display split NMA results on the plot
plot(pred, overlay.split=TRUE)

# Split NMA results estimated using random treatment effects model
plot(pred, overlay.split=TRUE, method="random")

# Add agent labels
plot(pred, agent.labs=c("Elet", "Suma", "Frov", "Almo", "Zolmi",
      "Nara", "Riza"))

# These labels will throw an error because "Placebo" is included in agent.labs when
#it will not be plotted as a separate panel
#### ERROR ####
#plot(pred, agent.labs=c("Placebo", "Elet", "Suma", "Frov", "Almo", "Zolmi",
#      "Nara", "Riza"))


# If insufficient predictions are made across dose-response function
# then the plotted responses are less smooth and can be misleading
pred <- predict(emax, E0 = 0.5, n.doses=3)
plot(pred)
